100th PNP draw announcement by Manitoba

PNP Draw
  • October 8, 2020

In the recent (October 8, 2020) Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw, Manitoba invited 191 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence. This was Manitoba’s 100th PNP draw and to date, Manitoba has invited 3,862 candidates in 2020.

Here Manitoba has invited skilled workers and international graduates through three immigration streams:

Such invitations are famous as Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) which are sent considering their Expression of Interest (EOI) score. In this draw, EOI score requirements were,

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba— 152 LAAs with a minimum score of at least 528;
  • Skilled Workers Overseas— 14 LAAs with a minimum score of at least 611; and
  • International Education Stream— 25 LAAs, no EOI score requirement.

From 191 sent LAAs, 20 were sent to candidates who have a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system.

Qualified candidates of the Express Entry pool is ranked considering their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that is evaluated on the basis of candidate’s age, work experience, education, and language ability.

It works on a first-come-first-served basis. Candidate with the highest score will be invited first to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the Express Entry pool and so on.

Candidates who get this LAA get additional 600 points in their CRS score table which guarantees an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Note: Express Entry candidates who received a provincial nomination from Manitoba in this draw declared a valid Express Entry ID and provided a job seeker validation code.


What is Manitoba’s EOI system?

If an applicant wishes to migrate to Manitoba, he/she needs to register with an Expression of Interest with the Manitoba Provincial Nomination Program (MPNP). IF you clear all eligibility and get selected, you will receive an LAA.

EOI system rank applications out of 1,000 points considering many factors i.e. applicant’s candidate’s work experience, education, English or French language ability, Manitoba connections, and other factors.
